Notification for new mchat messages

Would it be an idea to build a module for new mchat messages?
So that you get a nofitcation when there are new messages in the chat?

Don't you think this would spam your users with notifications? Imagine I see a notification about a new chat message while browsing the board. I open the chat, read the message and go back to browsing. Another user replies to the first chat message and I get another notification. Now either I'm going back to the chat again, but I could have just stayed when I was there earlier (in another tab maybe), or I ignore the notification in which case sending it was pointless.

I understand that being notified of chat activity can be useful but it needs to be done in a non spammy way. I'm open to suggestions, the more detailed the better.

Do you use mchat rooms or not?

I am not so good at English so I will try to put myself into words as well as possible.
Now it's just annoying sometimes that you have to check every time that new messages are posted in the chat or not.
I have attached a picture to give some more clarity.
And no, I do not use mchat rooms.

I would appreciate a simple notification for offline users.
If you are offline, you will only get a notification/mail about new messages in the chat. So like the notification at the forum.
